Thanks for the great video.

You are welcome. I enjoyed putting it together.

I was in this fight on Destro side. Order ended up having between 3-4 extra players in this SC.

I went back and looked at some of the footage I didn't use and found a quick segment where I opened the Party Roster. At that moment we did have two extra guys who were not listed on the initial Scenario listing. I just didn't notice it before. But I agree with you I am sure the Devs will sort that out.

If your only incentive to play is gear and you are not enjoying the game, I think you need to find more productive things to do with your life.
The current system is flawed, but as Natherul said It is early on and I expect changes to come. I don’t know why you can’t get medal drops from gold bags in over, even if it’s just 1-3. Either way, there is a fine line to these things. Open forts happened because there was so much crying and they were actually ruining the game. You would have 20 destro push a zone in NA time until fort then at fort it would be 150 order to 50 destro. I guess People have forgotten why they play this game. For the love of pvp? Nah. Gear grind until I get the gear and then either make an alt or quit playing. It doesn’t make sense to me tbh.

I am very sympathetic to your point of view here about love of the game, BUT when "end game" gear gives you a material advantage (not just a different set of choices with different advantages/disadvantages) then it makes it difficult to love playing the game when you are just there for the farming entertainment and/or ego satisfaction of the well-geared folks.

And, before anyone chimes in "skill trumps gear/points", tell that to the 40/40 geared WE (dies horribly) that tries to jump my 40/77 tank versus the 40/70 geared WE (gives me a run for my money if I don't hit the right buttons at the right time or gets lucky).

People PvP to compete. Better gear is required to stay competitive in the current system. Gear obsession is pretty much mandatory. If the devs want different behaviors, change the incentives.

Whoa youve been after this gear for a while and want it more than i do? Find something more "productive" then.

As an NA order I really enjoyed defending forts. Sure we lost a lot, but there was a true sense of accomplishment when we managed to sneak out a win.

Now with City Sieges, I find myself wondering if I should bother logging in anymore. The community dynamic has changed drastically and this flawed implementation has soured my enjoyment of orvr. I’ll probably follow Wargrimr advice and play something else.
